750ml bottle - labeled Chipotle Porter.
I’ve been wanting to try this one for some time now - dark black color with some tan head. Aromas of cocoa, some nutiness and smoke. Flavor is incredible! Some sweetness, chocolate flavors - some heat from the peppers but in no way overpowering. Increasing spiciness as it lingers - very unique. Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - MAY 23, 2010
Rating #12 from danish beer festival 2010.
Black sticky look with a dark brown head. Sweet honey in the aroma along with roasted malt notes. Bitter roasted flavors with a clear chili finish. As expected which was nice. ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 30, 2013
A - Dark black with a hint of brown and a finger of frothy khaki-chocolate colored head. Fades normal.
S - Sweet dark chocolate malts, chipotle, roasted coffee, black licorice, bit of molasses.
T - Sweet dark chocolate malts, bit of milk chocolate, lightly spicy chipotle peppers, roasted coffee, black licorice, molasses.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a spicy, warming, and sweet finish.
D - Nice spicy porter. The chipotle adds some nice heat without taking over. Rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Shared by Sparky at RBWG. It’s chuck norris in a bottle, so if I rated it poorly I wouldn’t be alive to rate this. Luckily it poured a dark brown with aroma of spices, coffee and chocolate. Flavor is choco-spices, coffee, and peppers integrate well with the brew. Thanks Eric! italarican (1546) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle generously shared at the RBSG grand tasting. Labeled as Chipotle Porter. Pours a dark chocolate brown. Aroma is musty with notes of dark chocolate. Flavor is unsweetened cocoa with some chalk. Roasted malt in the finish. Fairly good, but I got no pepper whatsoever.

750ml bottle pours dark brown black with 2 finger light tan head. Nose is soft bitter baker’s chocolate, ashy roast, light heat, subtle pepper spice. Taste has nice roasty chocolate, slighty ashy, cacao, medium body, balanced pepper spice. Finishes with a hint of chocolate sweetness, baker’s chocolate, moderate roast, nice assertive chili pepper spice heat that builds and lingers. Quite good! can8ianben (1538) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Rich, dark, and roasty with a hint of smoky spice hinting at chipotle peppers. Pretty awesome. HopfenWeisse (1529) - - FEB 19, 2013
Pitch black color with nice looking dark brown head. Aroma is roasted. Flavor is roasted, spices, chili. Trolleo (1524) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 13, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2016 Body is completely dark, huge tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, vanilla, hops, roasted malt, caramel. A bit smokey. Medium to full body, flat to soft carbonation. Finish is long coffee bitter and spicy, followed by a pleasant tingling; this is where chilli first appears. Just wonderful!

Pitch black body, small brown head. Aroma of spices, coffee, roasted malt and some grass. Refreshing taste, chocolate at first, than some chili. Soft carbonation, medium body, bit creamy. Very nice, but I?m not sure this is the same thing as Texas Ranger two years ago. FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 7, 2010
